Less than a month after the “Whale Wars” crew claimed it was followed illegally into French Antarctic waters by Japanese whalers, a collision between the two factions’ ships has destroyed a high-tech speed boat owned by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. And best of all… there’s video! Hooray!
In the clip below that was released by Japan’s Shonan Maru, you can clearly see the high-power water cannons used by the Japanese crew (and I think you can hear the LRAD sound weapon underneath the AP voiceover) before the two vessels collide, destroying the hull of the speedboat (pictured) and injuring one of the crew. Suck on that, hippies.
Not that I’m sympathetic to Japanese whalers. Or any whalers, for that matter. In fact, I’d much prefer it if the whaling ship got damaged. But I can’t cheer for the so-called “pirates” until they take up some real pirating. I’m talking about AK-47s, hostile takeovers, and Exocet missiles. But if they need to start a little smaller, I’d settle for some rum and butt sex.
I want more like this!
